DiLorenzo, Kris SHAKESPEARE’S WOMEN: THEY’RE NOT WHO YOU THINK THEY ARE! Literature- Other,
Performing Arts- Theater
Juliet’s a romantic teenager, Lady Macbeth’s an evil conniver, Kate’s an untameable shrew─ wrong! Shakespeare never paints a one-dimensional portrait. There’s much more to these and other females like Queen Margaret, Hermione, and Tamara, than meets the eye─ and you may be very surprised by what they’re really like. The clues to their personalities are in Will's original scripts. Actress Kris Dean performs Shakespeare’s women the way he wrote them, not the way we’re used to seeing them. You'll never look at them the same way again! Kris trained at the Royal National Theatre Studio in London, studied with Royal Shakespeare Company members, and was a master student of director Patrick Tucker, London’s Original Shakespeare Company founder. She has played many classical roles on the New York stage and appeared in Provincetown and Boston, as well as in her own one-woman show. Kris is a member of SAG and AFTRA

A voyage of two-weeks turns into ten years as capricious gods and wayward mortals thwart the Hero’s passage across the 'wine-dark sea'. The infamous one-eyed Cyclops, the alluring Sirens, six-headed Skylla, and the terrible whirlpool of Charybdis are but a few of the legendary monsters in this timeless adventure story. Through courage, cleverness and determination Odysseus triumphs over these trials and eventually is reunited with his family. Tales From the Odyssey is designed to introduce young audiences (ages 7 & up) and their families to one of the foundational stories of western literature. The visual elements in this poetic presentation are inspired by ancient Greek painted ceramics. Available June -December 2015, the show is well-suited for public libraries and small community venues. In fact, it's a perfect fit for the 2015 Summer Reading Theme: Every Hero Has A Story.
